Warrenpoint ‘To Live In Newry’s Shadow’ Forever Say Locals


Warrenpoint officials unveiled a new strategic vision for the Town today, one that aims to place Warrenpoint firmly in the shadow of its larger cousin, Newry for the foreseeable future.

Independent Councillor Jarlath Tinnelly told Newry Spud:

“This town has a proud tradition of dreaming big, and reaching higher, as long as those dreams are shorter than the ones in Newry. This plan is an effort to acknowledge that limiting but proud tradition.”

The Warrenpoint in 2020 Committee have said:

“We will hopefully be a fraction as good as Newry and we are laying out an action plan to perpetuate and strengthen the towns inferiority complex.”
